The best pubs near Euston Station

Euston was the first mainline station to connect London to another city (Birmingham). The original 1837 building was completely rebuilt in the 1960s - which gives it a very different look to its historic sister stations. While not the prettiest of places, the station is certainly one of the most hectic - it's the six busiest in the capital - and handy for Soho and Bloomsbury as well as nearby Regents Park. So if you're in the area and in need of a drink, here are our top five pub picks for the area around Euston Station.

Euston Tap

Distance from train station: 1 min

One of the most interesting train station pubs around, you get two pubs for the price of one here (both opposite each other at the entrance).At the Cider Tap they have eight keg ciders and five still ones, along with more bottles than you can shake a stick at.Over at the Beer Tap, they have eight rotating cask ales and 20 Keg beers - all on a large menu board - so there'll be something different on offer each time you visit.While both two-storey venues are tiny, they do have outdoor gardens and space to spill out of.And it's one of the nicest sights in London when arriving at the station to see these miniature beer and cider festivals in action.
